Equipment

  • mixing bowl
  • baking tray

Ingredients
 
 

  • 225 g rolled oats
  • 175 g uncooked quinoa
  • 3 Tbsp cacao
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 75 ml coconut oil
  • 100 ml maple syrup
  • 1 handful almonds
  • 1 handful pecans
  • 1 handful sunflower seeds
  • 1 handful pumpkin seeds
  • 1 handful dry cranberries
  • 10 dates
  • 4 Tbsp chopped dark chocolate

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven at 160ºC/325ºF/gas 3.
  • Slowly heat maple syrup and coconut oil together in a pan. Mix together. Remove from heat. Mix in vanilla extract and set aside.
  • Mix rolled oats, quinoa, cacao, almonds, pecans, pumpkins seeds, sunflower seeds with salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Add maple syrup and coconut oil mix. Toss until well blended.
  • Tip the granola onto a large baking tray lined with a baking sheet. Spread a little as you would do with the top of a crumble. You do not want it too thin.
  • Bake for 20 mins. Mix & spread the granola a little bit more. Bake for another 15-20 mins until golden. Mix and spread again. Switch off the oven and leave granola to "dry" inside for 2 hours or so.
  • Mix cranberries, chopped dates and chopped dark chocolate with granola. Store in an airtight container.
